Really enjoyed the tour we did around Sofia. Our guide Peter was very friendly and really knowledgeable, with lots of information on the history of the city, taking us to some unique sights. He was open to adjusting the tour depending on what we preferred to do. The food tastings were excellent (3 different food stops, one including a larger tasting platter and beer for lunch). Would very much recommend.

We had a wonderful experience on this tour! It is a relatively new offering of the company so there were some small kinks, but overall, everything went smoothly. Our guide was very knowledgeable and our tour was filled with intresting information. It was, we were told, similar to the regular walking tour - but with food! Trying typical Bulgarian foods added a fun dimension to seeing the sights, and it also allowed us a couple of chances to rest and get out of the July heat! Come hungry!


Simona, una guía de las que quedan pocas, estupenda, maravillosa, atenta, correcta y sobre todo profesional. Nos llevo por muchos sitios y todos maravillosos. Estuvo super pendiente de nosotros, y encantadora.
